ALMS: Long Beach Provisional Entry List.

ALMS Logo

 

 

 

 

Provisional entries for the second round of the 2011 American Le Mans Series at Long Beach are now available and, as the first ALMS round outside of the ILMC, grid numbers have dropped significantly.

As expected, the prototype ranks were most significantly affected. The (albeit anticipated) omission of series regulars Highcroft, Intersport, and AutoCon, leaving the LMP field in an ailing state, with only four (2x LMP1, 2x LMP2) entries between the two categories.

Long time series stalwarts, Robertson Racing will not compete at the event. As first time Le Mans competitors in 2011, the team and its pair of Doran Ford GT chassis, will be required to attend the Le Mans test day on April, 24. Logistical difficulties have prevented the squad from participating at Longbeach.

In a recent press release, JaguarRSR has unveiled driver lineups for the team’s Petit Le Mans debut. Some time ago the team confirmed it would field an additional XKR GT2 entry for the event, only now have specific details been released regarding the entry.

Endurance Aces, Butch Leitzinger and Tommi Drissi will join the squad for the 10 hour/1000 mile event, piloting the #33 chassis with JaguarRSR team owner and driver, Paul Gentilozzi.

Having driven a wide array of both prototype and GT machinery over the years, Leitzinger brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team. Known more recently for his exploits with Alex Job Racing in the GTC category, Leitzinger has a total of 91 ALMS starts to his name.

With victories at Le Mans, Daytona, in addition to various championships (i.e.  WSC, CanAm, and IMSA GTU), the talented North American provides vital substance to the growing team.

With recent outings in both LMP and TransAm machinery (the latter of which with Gentilozzi’s TransAm team), Tommi Drissi is a familiar face within US sportscar racing circles. Experience in ALMS, TransAm, GrandAm, and World Challenge series make Drissi a prime candidate for driving duties in JaguarRSR’s expanding programme.

The services of team regulars Marc Goossens and Ryan Dalziel will continue to be utilised within the #75 entry.

ALMS: Road America Results.

ALMS LogoRound seven of the 2010 American Le Mans series saw a resurgence of power in both LMP and GT categories. DraysonRacing achieved victory at the hands of young-ace, Johnny Cocker. Cocker’s last lap heroics enabled the team to take their maiden steps in victory lane. Podium finishes for both Cytosport and Highcroft entries ensure the championship race remains in contention.

In the GT category it was all about BMW and Rahal Letterman Racing. After a season of successful finishes, the team managed their first victory of the 2010 season courtesy of Dirk Müller and Joey Hand. Finishing a close second to the #90 BMW squad, Flying Lizard #45 extended their championship lead over rivals, Risi Competizione to a margin of eighteen points (previously eight).

ALMS: Robertson Racing Confirm Second Petit Le Mans Entry.

After months of speculation over the future of Robertson Racing’s FordGT programme, the team today confirmed the plans for expansion many fans had been hoping for.

Despite lacking factory-support, and facing one of the toughest financial climates in motorsport history, Robertson Racing has unveiled plans to field an additional FordGT entry before season’s end.

With chassis construction now underway, the team has elected for a wide cross-selection of talent to spearhead their all-professional assault on the series. Having driven alongside Andrea/David Robertson throughout the 2009 season, the seasoned hands of Robertson Racing regular and ALMS veteran David Murry will move to the new chassis. Murry will be joined by two-time Le Mans Series GT2 champion Rob Bell, and former IndyCar/NASCAR driver Anthony Lazzaro.

Robertson Racing Team Manager, Andrew Smith had the following to say: “We have been working hard for some time now to turn this into a reality so it’s fantastic to finally announce our expansion into a two-car squad. The Series’ GT class is probably the most competitive in world motorsport which makes running an independent team without works-backing very challenging.”

The team’s second FordGT entry will make its series debut at the 13th running of the Petit Le Mans event in early October. The race will also serve as the sole North American event during the inaugural running of the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup.
